Blake Announce 10th Anniversary Album & 2018 UK Tour.
Supplied By PR
Most ‘boy-bands’ come and go within a year or two, having fallen out of favour, fallen out with each other or just unable to handle the pressure-cooker of fame and constant touring. In this respect, BLAKE, is something of an anomaly. This spectacular classical male harmony group celebrate their 10th Anniversary this year with a brand new album and massive UK tour. It’s not a comeback, because they’ve never been away… Over a million albums sold, No.1 hits in ten countries and approaching 150 TV appearances around the globe, these three young men continue to enthral fans the world over with their amazing singing and charismatic stage presence. Indeed, their friendship and musical careers date back to their school days! The brand new CD, The Anniversary Album, is their 7th studio release and the group were determined to make it their best yet, as a celebratory gift to their legion of fans who have been with them for a decade. It is classic BLAKE and no-one will be disappointed. Not content with just a fantastic new album the group will be taking this album on the road for their biggest and most ambitious ever UK tour, personally showing their appreciation to the fans with performances of all their classic hits.
The album release is also timed to coincide with this year’s centenary celebration of the Royal Air Force. The Central Band of the RAF and The Royal Air Force Salon Orchestra are featured on all the tracks, and members of the Military Wives Choir featuring on two of the tracks. To commence their tour BLAKE are honoured to be performing at The Royal Albert Hall in The Royal Air Force Centenary Gala taking place on 31st March 2018. The concert will feature a star-studded programme to celebrate and commemorate the iconic and poignant occasions in its heroic 100 years.
BLAKE are known in many circles as much for their tireless charity work as they are their music, and the 10th Anniversary project is no different. Having used crowd-funding before, this time they wanted to take it to a whole other level. Via PledgeMusic, 10% of all funding over their target is being donated to the RAF Charitable Trust, which aims to enhance the environment of serving personnel and their families and with a commitment to initiate and develop, within young people, an enthusiasm for aviation.
